Following on from the recent investment in a new dilution headbox at BM3, Pankaboard’s investment programme has continued, with an upgrade on their BM2 machine, which produces folding boxboards, specializing in the heavier weight substances.
In early 2016 the company made a significant investment to up-grade the formation control on BM2 to meet the highest of quality standards. As a result of this new investment the fiber distribution was reengineered and optimized for enhanced smoothness and converting performance.
“Through this targeted investment and dedicated product development we have been able to reach a superior formation that results in several benefits for our customers,” says, Petri Saastamoinen, mill manager at Pankaboard.
The new fiber technology will enable the company to continue the development work in FBB to further optimize the product offering for strategic end uses.
Pankaboard is a global leading producer of special cartonboards with a capacity of 110 000 t/a.
